One hour added to low-performing PBC schools

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - The Palm Beach County School District is getting ready to add time to the school day.

An extra hour, mandated by the state, will be added to the school day of 16 of the county's elementary schools.

The reason: Recent test scores showed the schools were among Florida's worst when it comes to reading.

The district says the cost of adding the extra hour is between $7 and 8 million.
